Savings for Cupertino Seniors-the Tax Credit for Move-DOWN Cupertino Buyers By Michelle C. Carr-Crowe Lost in the hoopla about extending and expanding the "up to" $8,000 credit for new homebuyers is the credit for existing homeowners. In my opinion, this can be "Senior Salvation" - a tax credit for move-DOWN Cupertino sellers and buyers. I called my broker, my local real estate board, the California Association of REALTORS®, and even the IRS to ask my question: does this credit apply for move-down buyers? So far the answer is, "As long as they qualify and have a tax to apply the credit to, it looks like YES." To summarize: •1.      A first time homebuyer is one that has not owned a home for at least three years. •2.      A repeat homebuyer must have owned their current home for at least...

Cupertino Voters Extend Support for FUHSD Cupertino Schools But Not Enough for Measure G to Pass By Michelle C. Carr-Crowe Whether you live in Cupertino, San Jose, Santa Clara, Sunnyvale or Los Altos, your property's value benefits from being in the Fremont Union High School District (commonly referred to as "Cupertino Schools"). http://www.fuhsd.org Yet when the home phone rang at 7:00 pm tonight we were surprised, as most people call us on our cell phones. A Fremont Union High School District student called to remind my husband to vote on Measure G tonight. Our daughter who attends high school in the district had also made calls like this, so we were familiar with the campaign. We'd talked to another volunteer this past weekend in fact. They weren't taking any chances, even with just ...

In the Fremont High School District, Measure G is on the ballot. Below is a synopsis of the proposal. Basically, it is an extension of the existing parcel tax at the same amount of $98, which is set to expire, as well as an annual adjustment for inflation.

The Best $2 Show I've Ever Seen-Cupertino's Debut Choir Concert By Michelle C. Carr-Crowe When I was younger and low on cash and seeking inexpensive entertainment, I remember people suggested seeing high school games, musicals or performances as a reasonable option to higher-priced professional events. Current economic times are causing me and others to get back to basics and re-visit this money-saving habit. So when my daughter invited me to see Cupertino High School's Debut Choir Concert tonight, I said yes. I was even more thrilled once I heard the price! Tonight I enjoyed a fabulous show featuring talent, poise and professionalism produced by the students at Cupertino High School-and it only cost $2! I have to compliment the students' director Andrew Aron for his good-natured but fi...

I am still waiting for my Google Wave invitation. I applied to Google. I waited. I sent a few nice email requests to different departments at Google. All came back "failed". Living in Silicon Valley, whether San Jose, Saratoga, Cupertino or Palo Alto, there is a huge pressure to be on top of technology. I invest a lot of time learning new tools and technology. How can I learn it if I can't even get it? As I began feeling anxious while waiting, I blogged about my desire to obtain a Google Wave invitation on ActiveRain. While I received some messages of support, no invitations came through. Darn. So I figured I'd at least tell anyone else interested in obtaining a Google Wave invitaion the steps. For anyone else seeking an invitation to Google Wave, here is the link to the main request pa...

I would really love to get all of my phone numbers integrated. I'm really curious about how well Google Voice and Google Voice Light work. Is anyone here on AR using it? Liking it? Hating it? How is it compared to other services, both voicemail and voice recognition software? I'm constantly forwarding (or unforwarding) phone numbers and an integrated system sounds like a fantasy come true to me.  In honesty, I'm praying someone will kindly give me an invitation to try Google Voice. Maybe it will be you! Look forward to hearing your input...you can contact me offline as well at info@michellejudycarr.com.

Treats Not Tricks - Grandma Judy's Tips for a Fun & Safe Halloween Grandma Judy's Rules for Halloween-Making sure You Get Treats not Tricks My mother Judy Carr, like most children, LOVED Halloween. Most parents like me endure it.  Combining an abundance of sugar-rush-inducing candy, the exuberant freedom from inhibitions due to make-believe and costumes and the often opposing ideas of "Halloween fun" between younger and older children can result in a disappointing feeling of being tricked when you expected treats. Grandma Judy had the usual rules: walk, don't run; have at least 1 partner; only go to houses you know (or at least ones that are well-lit); don't touch the pumpkins or displays; don't eat any candy you received along the way, and listen to your chaperone. Also, keep in mind t...

Where the Real Wild Things Are: New Bengal Tiger Cubs Almost Ready for Petting   In Silicon Valley, most people have gotten away not only from farming, but nature itself. San Jose, Saratoga and Cupertino were formerly home to orchards of apricots, cherries and plumbs. Chickens, pigs and goats were fairly common just a generation or two ago. Now we're out of touch and sometimes need to literally travel outside of our comfort zone to get in touch with nature and the wild. If you've only have dreamed of petting a real live tiger cub, your opportunity is coming up! West Coast Game Park Safari - Bandon, Oregon Source: www.gameparksafari.com West Coast Game Park!
